Introduction: A high percentage of patients undergoing hepatectomy for metastatic colorectal liver disease will have a recurrence. Of these, some can be subject to a new resection. The usefulness of repeated hepatectomy remains controversial. The aim of this study is to evaluate the results of short and long-term outcomes in repeated hepatectomies. Methods: They were re-analyzed 68 repeated hepatectomies from two institutions. Demographics, characteristics of metastatic disease and hepatic resections were analyzed. Types of complications, morbidity and mortality were also analyzed as survival and disease-free time. Some of the factors of poor prognosis mentioned in the literature were evaluated. Results: The analysis of short-term data showed no statistically significant differences between patients with first and repeated hepatectomy, except the percentage of postoperative biliary leakage (p = 0.001). The 1-year survival was similar while 3 and 5 years survival showed significant differences (p = 0.024 and 0.004, respectively). The factors of poor prognosis referred in the literature were not representative in this series. Conclusion: The short-term results of repeated hepatectomy are similar to those resected once. Long term result are inferior to other published series.
